Manuel Soto y Solares (Sevilla 1839-1906) was restored by my friend Andres Dominguez. The luthier Manuel Soto y Solares had a close relationship with Antonio de Torres during his years in Sevilla, as their workshops were only a few doors apart on the Calle Cerrageria. When Torres when into “retirement” and moved back to Almeria in 1870, Manuel de Soto, and those seeking a Torres style guitar turned to Manuel de Soto y Solares, and he drew important clients such as Juan Breva (1844-1918) who is known to have used a Manuel de Soto y Solares guitar made between 1870 and 1890. The guitar is wonderful, and has been worth the effort to restore. Dr. Costa notes "This guitar is a fantastic instrument, my favorite Soto Y Solares yet."
